Swagger by Janice M. Hamby
Needles & yarn
Handspun semi-gradient
1 skein = 145.0 yards (132.6 meters), 117 grams

A sashay might be interpreted as a scaled down version of a swagger, which is what this scarf will be. Using less yarn than suggested, I’m going to improvise and make a narrower scarf/shawl in order to get enough length. The yarn was spun off batts I had carded in a class at Shepherd’s Harvest in 2012, described in this blog post.

117.5 grams in the skein.

The tip to the third gather took 14 grams. Width is constant from that point to the decrease.

Mods - swag is only 10 sts wide and 10 rows long.

Because this is turning out just long enough to go around the neck twice, without any tails to tie or drape, I added a one row buttonhole over 3 sts at the very tip - just a couple of rows right after the last wrap. With the button, this can be worn around my shoulders, too!
